Tiny nut and bolt, probably an M3? Maybe even smaller than that but it is repairable.
I think I used something like a #2-56 nut and bolt, maybe even smaller. When I wore those tits out I drilled and tapped the baseplate and Loctited in a couple of small setscrews. I wish that I'd squirrelled away an extra baseplate back when.
